Nevis Offers Free Assessment

Nevis is offering qualifying organizations a free Network Security Assessment

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Nevis Networks, a market leader in identity based persistent LAN security solutions, today announced it is offering qualifying organizations a free Network Security Assessment providing a detailed traffic analysis that can be delivered for individual LAN segments or on a network-wide basis. The free service leverages Nevis’ LANenforcer appliance to quickly identify how legitimate and malicious traffic patterns are affecting the network as well as determine systems that are non-compliant with company security policies.

"The LAN security assessment from Nevis provides enterprises with an opportunity to view the traffic profile of its clients in the least protected and most vulnerable area of the network—the Internal LAN,” said Michael Weinstein, CTO of Angel Computer Network Services, Inc., based in Wall, NJ. “This can expose previously unknown issues and provide an opportunity to mitigate risks before they get out of hand and possibly compromise the business. With LANenforcer's real-time and historical reporting, businesses can benefit from this powerful system as an auditing, compliance management and forensic analysis tool. Any organization concerned about the robustness and security of their LAN will benefit greatly from this assessment."

The free LAN security assessment is delivered over a two-week period starting with a comprehensive needs analysis. A comprehensive LAN security assessment report is provided with details providing:

  • all user names and MAC addresses accessing the network and the resources applications and services being accessed;
  • status of each endpoint’s operating system, anti-virus and anti-spyware;
  • disclosure of malware and malicious traffic traversing the network;
  • service and bandwidth utilization, including top 15 “talkers” on the LAN.

    Organizations qualifying for the LAN security assessment are those with at least 500 end users and a dedicated in-house IT security contact. The free LAN security assessment service will be available until September 1, 2007.

    “Without fail, our LAN security assessment service provides visibility into user activity, and uncovers malicious traffic, and compliance failures that LAN Security managers are simply unaware of,” said Nevis Networks COO Shane Buckley. “We’ve detected everything from operating system patch irregularities to malware brought into the network from unmanaged, mobile or external systems. In one instance we were able to identify and remove over 200Gbps of benign Malware activity going from the internal network to the internet, which translated into tangible ROI for the customer by saving further investment in additional, expensive perimeter security devices. The cliché ‘you can’t control what you can’t see’ is absolutely the case with LAN security and our assessment provides essential visibility with concise and actionable recommendations to improve the security posture, performance and availability of the enterprise network”

    Nevis’ LANenforcer solutions provide the enterprise with the ability to:

    • mitigate the risk from endpoint vulnerabilities—(NAC);
    • gain an understanding of who is accessing the network and control what they are doing—(Identity Based Access Control);
    • protect their core assets and IP from zero day malware and malicious attacks—(IPS);
    • reduce the overall costs of troubleshooting, incident resolution and auditing on the network without adversely affecting the end user experience—(Monitoring and Reporting).
